B&W Smokey Rose

The image above is the B&W practice image from one of my prior photos I experimented with while getting ready for one of the most difficult pushes I have encountered since joining the Get Pushed! family back in Round 6, courtesy of Rich Kyllo (www.flickr.com/photos/55121477@N03/).

 

His push was to produce a high contrast b/w image that shows an interesting notan structure. (blip.tv/richard-robinson/painting-lesson-notan-3581710) and (emptyeasel.com/2008/08/19/using-notan-as-a-painting-strategy-a-step-b y-step-painting-tutorial/). This was challenge for me, developing (no pun intended!) the mindset to think of my setup in this new way PRIOR to pressing that shutter release.

 

I decided that there might be some images in my photostream that I just lucked out in having contrasting composition that fit the profile of having a good Notan structure. This is one of them (see the Notan structure below). The other "discovered" Notan structure images and links to their normal images can be found at:
